Cooperative Education and Internship Program
To support your classroom learning, Holy Family University offers Cooperative Education and Internship Opportunities. These programs are structured and supervised on-the-job learning experiences that qualify for college credit. The Holy Family University Cooperative Education Department provides students with practical training and experience in a variety of real life work settings through cooperatively arranged, paid (co-op) or unpaid (internships), study-related programs operated under the guidance and supervision of participating employers, University faculty members, and the director and staff members of the Co-op Department. Ideally, sophomore year is the best time to make an appointment to apply for co-op or internship placement; freshmen are also encouraged to apply early. A student must have junior or senior status to be placed in a co-op or internship position related to his/her academic major. Positions include international sites, countrywide locations and local organizations.
Three programs are available for both full- and part-time juniors and seniors:
- Alternating: the student alternates full-time work periods with periods of full-time study
- Parallel: the student attends classes full- or part-time while working part-time
- Job Enrichment: for the student who is already working for an employer willing to assign him or her temporarily to a new department or to a special project.
